Tannic, very good – not great – vintage. Just starting to open. Looks if anything a little less blue than the 2004 and 2000! Ripe, sweet nose. Hint of pepper and spearmint. Dry tannins on the finish. Could be drunk with food. Still a little callow.
Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026

The light, fresh, sensual, round 2006 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux exhibits moderate levels of dark cherry and red currant fruit accompanied by background herb and spice characteristics. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
